We are navigating unprecedented times as a result of the coronavirus. Ocean Institute has been hit hard as school restrictions have caused a complete wipeout of our programs during our highest revenue generating season- which is the fuel that propels us through the rest of the year.

Additionally, we postponed the Ocean Institute Fest- our biggest annual fundraiser that was to occur later this month- to September.

It has been a complete cascade for us - as it has for so many others. On March 16th, 2020, we had to make the difficult announcement to our team that the Ocean Institute must shut down in compliance with the restrictions related to social gatherings.

We are stripping down and prioritizing keeping the animals alive and maintaining the minimum infrastructure to stretch our resources out as far as possible.

We remain hopeful that things will swing up in the right direction- but can't let hope get in the way of doing everything I can to make sure we sustain through this.

We are humbly asking for your consideration of emergency support for OI operations - in any amount. To give online, please click: https://secure.ocean-institute.org/an...

We know the storm will pass but are very concerned about withstanding it.
